Angela Shelton CEO, Answers for Associations

Angela started her working career as a Legal Assistant and later as a banking paralegal, her natural business sense found their application as she left the legal industry and joined a trades and services business. Here she took over the general management of the office and was very successful in turning around in-house practices to increase workflow efficiency. Realising this was not quite the right challenge, she moved into the Not for Profit Sector where she found her passion for helping Associations and their teams to showcase and improve their successes and innovations. Her natural sense of organisation lends itself brilliantly to the creation of innovative events that promotes these channels of success.
